Mohua wood collection - Men's rings
Made with remnants of an adobe earth house build, from native timbers milled decades ago these rings venerate the subtle characteristics of wood. The experience of living with a closer connection to nature, her rhythms, cycles and patterns both visually and energetically, are inspiration for this ongoing line of enquiry in working with this living material.
The sensation of the tactile nature of this material can be both surprising and reassuring; soft, warm, smooth, light, and naturally melding into the human form.

Tin and Timber
This project transported me back to my childhood running barefoot through the long grass on my family’s orchard collecting stones, tiny windblown birds’ nests and other earthly treasures, before bringing them back to a pint sized workbench next to my father’s in the garage.
I had a fascination with the nostalgic, especially old tins, and kept my precious findings in them. Moa stones and chunks of Kauri gum my father had found, bird’s feathers and broken eggs, sea shells and other bits I’d collected ended up in these tins.
In this project I have endeavoured to recreate a small sacred moment with each assemblage of treasure inside these tins. I hope that the new guardians of these treasures will also create a little space to enjoy them as I have done in their creation.

Tilt is a dual exploration into dissolving boundaries between the jewellery object and the container it is held in. The container of a work becomes a blank canvas to be composed upon and within, also giving agency to the owner's influence on the greater whole.

'Black to Black'
Sinkovich continues to refine her investigation into the perceived disconnect between humans and the environment in this recent body of work.
A gross versus subtle aspect is explored within the dark and brooding nature of these carefully orchestrated alike, but dissimilar materials.
The juxtaposition between the expected precision and value of traditional fine jewellery and untamed rawness of the natural specimens incorporated creates a tension while inviting the viewer to contemplate the nature of fluidity of the contrasting materials.
